the mesolimbic pathway

From an in-depth study on money, happiness, and satisfaction study done in 2010, Denmark ranks No. 1 in life satisfaction, seventh on positive feelings, and fifth in income. Comparatively, the United States ranks No. 1 in income but ranked 16th in life satisfaction and 26th on positive feelings.

There is no evidence to show that money is directly related to happiness or intellect. Studies have found that happier people generally: express gratitude on a regular basis; practice being optimistic; engage in frequent acts of kindness; savor joyful events, and practice forgiveness.

Today was pretty lovely. Also sad in many ways.
But I think I enjoyed myself more thoroughly than I have in a while. Maybe it’s because I let myself. I have new theories on letting oneself be happy without worry or stress or anxiety or general bullshit. It’s just hard for me to let go sometimes.
My lunch was super delicious though. Delightful in a plethora of ways.
And then I witnessed an epic puppy play date (two Boston terriers, an out of breath bijou, and a tiny little mop of a shi tzu [sp?])
And then hustled some friends into seeing twilight: breaking dawn with me (accompanied by a couple of spiked slurpees) I felt rambunctious and wild. Weird.
